Natural Paving fits the bill for Anderson Group 

The Talasey Group is delighted to have supplied a range of its Natural Paving products to a housing development in Essex, which is being built on the site of the former Tottenham Hotspur Football Club training ground.

The new development consists of 60 houses and is situated in a leafy area of Chigwell, surrounded by fields and trees and in close proximity to the River Roding.

The Talasey Group has supplied approximately 2,990 metres of its Natural Paving’s Promenade Classicstone Sandstone, which has been installed across all of the homes.

The developer, Anderson Group, has built both a school and the homes that surround it. The ambition was to create a typical Essex village plan, using different house styles to create an attractive community. Therefore it was essential that the products used on the properties were versatile and would look good across the different types of dwellings.

Speaking about the project, Mark Thurston, Procurement Manager at Anderson Group commented: “One of the biggest challenges when working on a project of this scope is the need for products that are high quality but also cost-effective. These were the criteria that led us to choosing Natural Paving products, as the stone available was a perfect fit, with remarkable texture, colour and price. We’ve been very impressed with the company’s paving solutions and look set to use them again on another upcoming job.”

Looking for a stone that would complement the green spaces of the properties’ gardens, Anderson Group eventually settled on the Promenade Classic Sandstone, which has a cool colour palette. Whilst mostly grey in hue, the flagstone can weather over time to expose brown and buff tones. It forms part of Natural Paving’s popular Classicstone collection of CE Marked and ethically sourced products that can be used to create a warm and rustic look.

Anderson Group first decided on using the sandstone paving after liaising with local builders merchants, Sliverton Aggregrates Ltd. Anderson had asked the merchants to put forward a range of sandstone choices for the development’s outdoor environment but hadn’t specified any particular colour or style. After viewing a range of choices they settled for Natural Paving goods on grounds of the product’s colour and shade.

Speaking on his role in the project, Mark Buckle, Customer Sales at Silverton Aggregrates Ltd commented: “We were approached by Anderson to put forward a sandstone option for this development. Natural Paving was the third company we presented to them and they were very impressed. In fact, Anderson has specified the goods on another development.”

He continued: “Over the duration of the project, I experienced no problems working with Natural Paving, part of the Talasey Group. When necessary, the company was helpful and responsive. Late on in the development, Anderson Group changed the specification from single size stones to larger packs. It was a challenging moment and we didn’t have much time to react. Thankfully, Shaun Utting of the Talasey Group was on hand to resolve the issue. “

The aforementioned Shaun Utting, who was in charge of helping Anderson Group deliver the project commented: “This is a stand-out project in a notable location and something that we’re really proud to be a part of. As we operate a merchant only sales policy, Anderson Group purchased all their products through one of our merchant partners and it’s exciting to see our customer network having the opportunity to supply such a prestigious project.”
